What can’t you miss at the Brevard Zoo?

Mainly, you can’t miss Brevard Zoo’s animal exhibits- it is home to over 700 species brought from all around the world. Observing them interact and play with each other is a very thrilling part of the visit.

Another sensational experience at Brevard Zoo is when the zoo keepers feed the animals.  I recommend you to check out what activities are prepared for your visiting day, so you don’t miss them- very interesting!
